Product description

Review

'In Magpies, Squirrels and Thieves, Jacqueline Yallop throws the windows wide, showing how nineteenth-century collections rose and fell, and, through the lives of the collectors, how the Victorians thought. Her book is original, intelligent - and highly entertaining.' --Judith Flanders

'A tremendous book, brimming over with strange compelling images and glittering morsels to tempt the magpie reader. This really is a cabinet of curiosities, delights and revelations.' --Alexandra Harris

Book Description

The rivetingly bizarre stories of the passionate and eccentric Victorian collectors who braved war zones, revolutions, thieves and auction rooms to amass the great collections of nineteenth-century England: 'Yallop's flair for storytelling is evident at every turn.' Scotsman --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
